Product description

1️⃣ Rakia tastings (rakieni krajotsi) are pleasant rather educational as well as fun events. What we do is professional tasting of 4-6 rakias dedicated to a certain theme. Each rakia is presented individually and served with the appropriate for it dish, called in Bulgaria “meze”. There may be a countless number of topics (grape rakias; plum rakias; summer rakias; winter rakias; rakias suitable for an aperitif; rakias suitable for a digestif, etc.). Each rakia is served in tasting quantities (20ml-30ml) accompanied by small dishes in the form of meze tailored to each rakia.

2️⃣ RAKIA team buildings and workshops - We start with an introduction of what rakia is, followed by an introduction of how to taste rakia properly.Then we divide the people into teams and organize a competition for them. At the end of the exercise, we explain each of the rakias the participants tasted and announce the winner. We support each theoretical part by a tasting of the particular rakias, which best illustrate the theory in practice.

3️⃣ Rakia Dinner including a several course menu where each course is combined with the proper kind of RAKIA or a combination of RAKIA or wine depending on the course.

Sample Menu

• Traditional salad - Green salad with bulgarian sheep cheese or marinated vegitables salad paired with grape rakia
